A good week this week, once we get through Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday will see a mixture of cloud and sunny spells but rain will arrive during Monday night. The rain will ease somewhat during Tuesday but become heavier again in the evening. Another pulse of rain will spread up from the south on Wednesday before it finally clears off in the afternoon. A welcome fair day then for Thursday. Continuing dry and fair for Friday. There will be a light frost Friday night. The weekend will also be fair just with light frosts at night. The settled weather should continue into next week.
